Smart Heritage - Bhopal

15th – 17th January 2018

“Heritage is of increasing significance to each society. Why this is so is not entirely clear but probably it has to do with the increasing speed of modernization and the scale of change in society. In such circumstances, evidence of past societies can provide a sense of belonging and security to modern societies and be an anchor in a rapidly changing world…Understanding the past can also be of great help for managing the problems of the present and the future” (UNESCO, 2013). As the current ‘Smart City’ plans have resulted in many new developments in different facets of living like mobility, security, management, energy, health, etc. In retrospect, the heritage of the city remains ‘protected’ from change and invariably becomes static. Many fail to realize that Heritage by nature is a dynamic concept that includes not only the building but also emotions, history, stories, traditions, economies and social functioning. Hence if the city is on a path to becoming ‘Smart’ heritage too should redefine in order to “help manage the problems of the present and the future”.
BACKGROUND
The first step was taken in 2014, during a joint meeting at the International Biennial of Art and Heritage Management (AR&PA) in Valladolid, Spain about ‘India-Spain Co-operation in the field of Heritage Conservation and Management’. It was then the committee of the roundtable conference coined the term ‘Smart Heritage’. During the conference, INTACH suggested initiating a programme wherein a group of heritage experts, with diverse approaches, would debate about challenges faced by heritage and the acts of heritage preservation and promotion in the wake of changing global scenarios, specifically in the case of ‘Smart’ cities. The idea was born out of an objective to transform these debates into a collection of ‘essential lessons’ to deliberate on “smart heritage in smart cities”.
AIM
The general aim is to organize a three-day workshop to understand and develop broadly the concept of ‘Smart Heritage’; analyze the meaning of ‘Smart Heritage within a Smart City’ and prepare a methodology for its application within the management of a ‘Smart City’.
OBJECTIVE
The operational objective is to create awareness and initiate a dialogue around the concept of “Smart Heritage” in Smart City. The workshop will also endeavor to make ideas like community participation, e-governance, and new operational technologies popular. The workshop will also try to engage the participants to provide solutions and devise methods to make heritage ‘smart’.
 LEARNING OUTCOMES
Upon completion of this course the participants should be able to:
  • Understand the concept of Smart Heritage
  • Apply the concept in to produce a dossier of recommendations of the lessons learned in order to be transferable to other Smart Cities in India.
  • Recognize the aspects of a Smart Heritage within a Smart City
  • Critically analyze the historical assets in cities as well as finding practical solutions to bridge the gap between heritage and urban development.

The practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artifacts and cultural spaces associated therewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, is constantly recreated by communities and groups in response to their environment, their interaction with nature and their history, and provides them with a sense of identity and continuity, thus promoting respect for cultural diversity and human creativity.

(UNESCO, 2003)


Many unprotected heritage sites are still in use, and the manner in which they continue to be kept in use represents the ‘living’ heritage of India. This heritage is manifest in both tangible and intangible forms, and in its diversity defines the composite culture of the country. Conserving the ‘living’ heritage, therefore, offers the potential to conserve both traditional buildings and traditional ways of building.

(INTACH Charter, 2004)


AIM A broad aim of the 3-day course is to create an understanding of the concept of ‘Living Heritage’ and assess values associated with it and explore its application for the conservation of cultural heritage. OBJECTIVE This 3-day course is designed to explore the concept of ‘Living Heritage’ through interactive sessions on intangible heritage and traditional crafts. The course will attempt to shape an understanding in the various activities that crafts-people have been carrying out since a long time – what motivates them, how is the tradition passed on and how is this documented? In addition to this, we will delve into the aspects like types of ‘living’ heritage, conserving living architectural heritage and methods of documenting living heritage. LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon completion of this course the participants will:
  1. gain an understanding of the concept of ‘living heritage’
  2. gain an understanding of the relation between ‘living’, intangible and tangible heritage
  3. get introduced to the methods of document ‘living heritage’
  4. develop earning the different types of ‘living heritage’ in the Indian context
  5. be able to determine the approaches to its conservation and management

Heritage, People and Law

14 November 2018

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi
Aim
The broad aim of this master class is to introduce the participants to the understanding of heritage regulations and policies related to protected and unprotected heritage sites and interpreting them to implement and make a strong case for protection and preservation. 
Contents
India is a diverse country with vast heritage. People from different countries, religions, cultures, dynasties have peacefully co-existed in India for several centuries. It has shaped up India’s large and unique heritage. However, there are currently about 3650 ancient monuments and archaeological sites and remains under the protection of Archaeological Survey of India. To make the situation worse, the heritage falling in the more popular areas are in good upkeep, but the heritage in remote towns and villages are not even maintained properly. With sudden “development”, the natural and built environment has been under tremendous pressure; hence a lot has been destroyed already. Heritage protection through legislation and regulation is probably one of the reasonable way to preserve heritage.  The need for understanding of Acts, Laws, Legislation, Regulation and Public Interest Litigation as a tool to conservation has led to the development of this master class.
Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this Master class the participants will be able to:
  • develop an understanding of the Heritage Legislation and Regulations
  • gain introduction to the notions of value and significance associated with various nuances of heritage
  • develop basic knowledge of the approaches to legal aspects in conservation
  • start thinking critically about the present and future of heritage in the view of legislation and policies
Speakers
The Master Class will be taught by the staff at INTACH Heritage Academy and invited guest speakers on specific aspects of the Master Class.

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi

Aim

A broad aim of the course is to introduce the concept of Cultural Tourism and create an awareness about  the  importance  and  fragile nature  of heritage  places,  collections  and  living  cultures that foster the capability and prospects of such concepts in India whilst working towards achieving a sustainable future for them.

Content

As per the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Charter (1999): “Tourism itself has become an increasingly complex phenomenon, with political, economic, social, cultural, educational, bio-physical, ecological and aesthetic dimensions. The achievement of a beneficial inter-action between the potentially conflicting expectations and aspirations of visitors and host or local communities, presents many challenges and opportunities.” The course is an attempt to explore and assess these various dimensions of Cultural Tourism. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities that tourism provides for ‘authentic’ cultural exchange between locals and visitors. In the Indian context, cultural tourism may include aspects related to heritage, pilgrimage, spirituality, crafts etc. We will discuss these aspects with help of case studies. A special field visit will be designed for practical experience of some of the key aspects related to cultural tourism.

Upon completion of this course, the participants will:
  • Develop a basic knowledge of the concept of Cultural Tourism.
